Last thought

I know many of you are easting twice today. After Yom Tov you can explain to me where this gluttenous custom comes from and how it jives with the idea that we say Vidui at Mincha "Lest one choke while eating the pre-Yom Kippur meal and die without atonement, or lest one become intoxicated and unable to concentrate on the prayers at night.(Mishna Berura 607:1)"

What if you choke at the first meal?
